Had a great stay!

Staff members were pleasant, the pool was really nice, and the rooms were great. Comfy pillows and blankets! Only complaints - no hot tub, and the breakfast options were limited. I really enjoyed havi... more

Hello Valued Guest, Thank you for your great review! Our entire team strives to provide great service along with clean, well maintained rooms and your comments motivate us to keep up the good work. Our guests love relaxing in our lush pool area. We are sorry that we don't have a hot tub. Unfortunately, there are no plans to install one but, guests do enjoy the heated pool most of the year. Our typical continental breakfast has a variety of pastries from a local bakery, steel cut oats with toppings, freshly baked waffles, scrambled eggs with either sausage or potatoes, yogurt, fresh fruit, lots of coffee, tea and juices. We also have a gluten free item available and dairy free milk, upon request. Unfortunately, during this pandemic that the world is experiencing, our breakfast room must remain closed. But, until we are able to reopen it, we do have a few snacks available at the front desk for our guests each morning. We are glad to see that you were satisfied with your accommodations. The family suites are spacious and functional, having 2 queen sized beds in the bedroom, which is separated by a door from the living room area which has a sofa bed and the studio sized kitchen with apartment sized appliances. They are definitely great for longer stays. Thank you so much for sharing your experience here on TripAdvisor with our potential guests! We hope to serve you again if you are ever back in the area! Yours in Hospitality, Michelle C. Front Office Manager

Hi Transist0r, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. We love to hear about what we are doing right and what types of things to make our guests stay more enjoyable. Our experienced housekeeping & maintenance staff work very hard to provide a functional & clean room for our guests during their stay here in San Diego. We are located close to San Diego State University located central to San Diego, right off of the interstate 8 freeway. Most attractions like the airport, San Diego Zoo, and beaches are easily accessible being about 15-20 minutes away. Thank you for choosing the Best Western Lamplighter Inn. We hope to see you again if you are ever in San Diego again! Sincerely, Ookii Front Desk Best Western Lamplighter Inn

Awesome service

I booked a room via a third party website for two nights. The room I booked was for two beds and four people. Somehow, there was a problem and I was given a room with only one bed. There was no roo... more

Dear Valued Guest, WOW! We simply cant thank you enough for providing such pleasant feedback regarding your stay with us, and recognizing our amazing front desk agent, Ookii. He has been with our company for many years and continues to provide exceptional customer service. Our front desk team takes pride in their work, and as you experienced, it is reflected through our service and guest experience. Our company culture is to provide quality, affordability and great customer service to our guests. Our hotel is a modest, AAA 2-diamond family owned property with many free amenities that you may end up having to pay in more expensive hotels. We make sure that the grounds are lush and well kept, we never charge for parking, internet, breakfast or movies. We tend to rate highly with guests who have done their research, appreciate genuine hospitality, value cleanliness, and want to get the most out of their dollar. Again, thank you again for providing such wonderful compliments, you can only imagine how proud this makes us feel as a company! We hope to serve you again in the near future, and as always book with us directly to save! Yours In Hospitality, Best Western lamplighter Inn & Staff

Hello Ccraig9015, Thanks for taking the time to share your experience with us! We are glad you enjoyed your stay as we always strive to provide great customer service and great value for our guest. Breakfast is very popular here especially since we have a new, local bakery delivering fresh daily. When it warms up a bit, and by the looks of it, it will, we hope that guests will make use of our outdoor patio area to enjoy the most important meal of the day. We hope to see you next time you are in San Diego! Sincerely, Ookii Front Desk Best Western Lamplighter Inn
